The Volkswagen Tiguan GTE Active Concept made its world debut at the 2016 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), in the country that popularized the Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV)

The vehicle’s most striking innovation is its efficient plug-in hybrid system that uses two electric motors and a gasoline engine, which can supply all four wheels with power, either automatically or at the push of a button

The vehicle can cover up to 20 miles in all-electric mode

The driving range, based on a battery capacity of 12.4 kWh and a 16.9-gallon fuel tank, is 580 miles.Volkswagen has configured the design, packaging and technical features of the SUV to be as innovative as its plug-in hybrid drive system
